Avoid. This is the B chassis PS4, so it doesn't have the lower power consumption of C chassis, which means the fans spin up like crazy and the console gets hot when playing demanding games. What that means is higher chance of the system developing a fault in the long run... unless you're comfortable with taking the case off the PS4 and applying thermal paste, that is.

I think 'avoid' is a tad on the wrong side of exaggerating, don't you agree?

There are numerous Playstation owners still gaming on the consoles they purchased on day one (3 years ago). It's a £150 PS4 with a game, I find it pretty unbelievable that anybody would advise any deal seeker to avoid this bargain.

I agree the C chassis have been floating about and would be the better choice, but let's be honest about this, in the most part they have not been unobtainable by a lot of people. If you see this people, please don't avoid it if you're looking for a PlayStation 4.

Don't get on at me for giving out relevant info and making sure people get the best possible product for their quid. You might be fine with it possibly lasting a couple of years (but a couple of years is being generous with B chassis... it's a throw of the dice) but others certainly may not.

True, avoid is an extreme stance but I'm just speaking from a point of durability. You're taking a much greater risk of the system failing buying prior to C chassis. My friend takes care of his systems (air compressor to get dust outta vents, etc) and yet twice a B chassis failed on him. Sony simply stuffed too much power hungry components, in too little negative space, with too cheap a fan, (and in some cases) with too little (or rubbishly spread) thermal paste. And it's a fairly well reported issue with that model... certainly enough to air caution as to whether to purchase it or not. That's why I said it is a throw of the dice. You may come up trumps, but you may get a system that doesn't have enough thermal paste (or in my nephew's case, with paste not evenly spread) that it in essence puts a strict tick down of life on your product. The notable reduction in TDP with the C chassis puts the system much further on the reliable side.

I personally wouldn't use compressed air on PS4 vents. It blows alot of dust back into the console. A vaccum cleaner is a better option.

Surprisingly easy to do, I've done it for at least twenty PS4's and makes them completely silent, especially when playing digital games as the disc drive is the noisiest part! Makes you wonder why Sony didn't use better quality paste in the first place...

Yep, I did it for my nephew's PS4 (thermal paste what was there was sloppily applied, providing little use). But I have read some horror stories of people attempting it and it going awry.

Branded Watch Dogs bundle, which released many months before C chassis made it to market.

To be fair, i personally had no idea what all the "Chasis" talk was, and didnt think to look into it, so thanks for pointing it out as i will keep it in mind when making future purchases.

Agreed, My DaY 1 Console is running absolutely fine, no loud fan noises, no hardware issues, games play fine etc.

Obviously if you don't look after it, placing it in a closed cabinet or in enclosure with many other devices such as skyboxes etc, then you will most likely get noisy fans.

Air caution?! Are you trying to say err on the side of caution? This is the funniest eggcorn I've seen on this site if so

I appreciate the sentiment of this type of comment, but I've had my console since launch, racking up a decent number of hours and it's not skipped a beat. I wouldn't let the B-spec put you off buying the console if you can get it at this sort of price :)

Compressed air is exactly what you are supposed to use. Vacuums create a lot of charged particles when the dust hits the tubes and the static can damage the electronics.
